For part of our Bible study this year on a woman’s role in marriage, our leader has us compiling a list about our husbands. Each week when we come in, she asks us to write something about our husbands that we are grateful for – something in their character, something they have done for us, etc. Then when we are having one of those days where marriage is hard work, we can refer to the list and remember why we love these men so much.
Today, Kevin and I have been married twelve years. A dozen! And in honor of that, I’m posting my list.
~He values my work as a wife and mother.
~He is a good provider.
~He accepts me as I am.
~He has a great sense of humor.
~He thinks I’m worth it.
~He is protective of me.
~He gives me time for myself.
~He puts his family first financially.
~He likes to have fun with the kids.
~He chooses the right thing even when it’s hard.
~He likes to make me laugh.
~He is friendly to everyone.
~He doesn’t stay angry at me.
~He likes to talk.
Of course, by the end of the year, there will be many more items on this list. I think of new reasons every day to be so grateful for the man I was privileged to marry.
Happy Anniversary, honey. Here’s to dozens more!
